The Duke of Westminster hosted a clay pigeon shoot on his Abbeystead estate in north Lancashire, raising more than 12,000 for the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust.
More than 23 teams from across the north west attended the event, staged by Lancaster jewellers Banks Lyon and supported by the Breitling watch manufacturer.

The Ribble Valley-based Whitewell Syndicate proved the team with the keenest eye on the day with Hugh Gregson, Philip Taylor, Ken Leyland and John Wilkinson winning a trophy presented by the Duke.

Edward Hay, director at the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust, said: A fantastic amount of money was raised which will go towards our scientific work to promote game and wildlife management as an essential part of nature conservation.
